Alumni Advisory Board

The Island School Alumni Advisory Board (AAB) was created in 2008 to reengage Island School alumni and add structure to the Island School alumni community that has spread from Eleuthera across the globe.

The AAB promotes effective global citizenship by supporting connectivity and collaboration among the alumni community and through preservation of the mission and vision of the Island School for future students. Citizenship, connectivity, collaboration: all pillars of the on-island experience that the AAB works to sustain.

The AAB maintains a blog, active contact with the Island School Board of Directors, and holds two board meetings each year along with quarterly conference calls. Specific agenda items include advising the Island School Board of Directors, helping coordinate reunions and other alumni events, and providing networking opportunities to alumni, regardless of their career interests.

Every student’s Island School experience is different, and with an ever-changing campus landscape and research scope many returning alumni are often confronted with a different school than they remember. The AAB works to ensure that all alumni feel connected to The Island School, regardless of miles traveled or time passed.
